China and East Africa: Ancient Ties and Contemporary Flows marks the culmination of a new round of archaeological and historical research on the relations between China and Africa, from the origins to the present. Africa and Asia have always been in constant contact, through land and seas. The contributors to this volume debate and present the results of their research on the very complex and intricate networks of connections that crisscrossed the Indian Ocean and surrounding lands linking Africa to East Asia. A growing number of speakers of Austronesian languages returned to Africa, reaching Madagascar in the early centuries of the Common Era. The diffusion of domesticated plants, like bananas, from New Guinea to South Asia and Africa where phytoliths are dated to the mid-fourth millennium in Uganda and mid-first millennium BCE in southern Cameroon, provide additional evidence on early interactions between Africa and Asia. Africa and Asia have always been in constant contact, through land and seas. Edited by Chapurukha Kusimba, Tiequan Zhu, and Purity Wakabari Kiura, this collection explores different facets of the interaction between China and Africa, from their earliest manifestations to the present and with an eye to the future.

When many scholars are asked about early human settlement in the Americas, they might point to a handful of archaeological sites as evidence. Yet the process was not a simple one, and today there is no consistent argument favoring a particular scenario for the peopling of the New World. This book approaches the human settlement of the Americas from a biogeographical perspective in order to provide a better understanding of the mechanisms and consequences of this unique event. It considers many of the questions that continue to surround the peopling of the Western Hemisphere, focusing not on sites, dates, and artifacts but rather on theories and models that attempt to explain how the colonization occurred. Unlike other studies, this book draws on a wide range of disciplines--archaeology, human genetics and osteology, linguistics, ethnology, and ecology--to present the big picture of this migration. Its wide-ranging content considers who the Pleistocene settlers were and where they came from, their likely routes of migration, and the ecological role of these pioneers and the consequences of colonization. Comprehensive in both geographic and topical coverage, the contributions include an explanation of how the first inhabitants could have spread across North America within several centuries, the most comprehensive review of new mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosome data relating to the colonization, and a critique of recent linguistic theories. Although the authors lean toward a conservative rather than an extreme chronology, this volume goes beyond the simplistic emphasis on dating that has dominated the debate so far to a concern with late Pleistocene forager adaptations and how foragers may have coped with a wide range of environmental and ecological factors. It offers researchers in this exciting field the most complete summary of current knowledge and provides non-specialists and general readers with new answers to the questions surrounding the origins of the first Americans.

Using human skeletal remains, this volume traces health, workload and violence in the European population over the past 2,000 years. Health was surprisingly good for people who lived during the early Medieval Period. The Plague of Justinian of the sixth century was ultimately beneficial for health because the smaller population had relatively more resources that contributed to better living conditions. Increasing population density and inequality in the following centuries imposed an unhealthy diet - poor in protein - on the European population. With the onset of the Little Ice Age in the late Middle Ages, a further health decline ensued, which was not reversed until the nineteenth century. While some aspects of health declined, other attributes improved. During the early modern period, interpersonal violence (outside of warfare) declined possibly because stronger states and institutions were able to enforce compromise and cooperation. European health over the past two millennia was hence multifaceted in nature.

Advance praise for the Second Edition: "The substantial widening of the coverage and the inclusion ofissues that have received increased or revitalized researchinterest since publication of the First Edition will provideunrivalled comprehensiveness." —Holger Schutkowski, PhD, University of Bradford,UK "I enthusiastically recommend the publication of this SecondEdition. It is already an excellent volume and [will] no doubtfind its way into many upper-division courses." —Patricia Lambert, PhD, Utah State University The First Edition of Biological Anthropology of the HumanSkeleton is the market-leading reference and textbook on thescientific analysis of human skeletal remains recovered fromarchaeological sites. Now, featuring scores of new or thoroughlyrevised content, this Second Edition provides the mostcomprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the topic available. Like the previous edition, this Second Edition isorganized into five parts with contributing chapters written byexperts in the field of human skeletal biology: Part One coverstheory and application; Part Two discusses morphological analysesof bone, teeth, and age changes; Part Three reviews prehistorichealth and disease; Part Four examines chemical and geneticanalysis of hard tissues; and Part Five closes with coverage ofquantitative methods and population studies. Each chapter includesa review of recent studies, descriptions of analytical techniquesand underlying assumptions, theory, methodological advances, andspeculation about future research. New or thoroughly revised content includes: Techniques in the analysis of human skeletal and dentalremains Extensive coverage of new technologies, including modernmorphometric techniques Advances in the field of forensic anthropology Enhanced discussion of ethical terms regarding the study ofaboriginal peoples' remains where those people are no longer thedominant culture Biological Anthropology of the Human Skeleton, SecondEdition serves as an indispensable research guide to biologicalanthropologists, osteologists, paleoanthropologists, andarchaeologists. Now with a stronger focus on teaching complexmaterial to students, this revised edition provides enhanced casestudies and discussions for future directions, making it aninvaluable textbook for advanced undergraduates and graduatestudents in biological anthropology and forensic anthropologyprograms.

The author presents a guide to interpreting human remains. The text covers why to study human remains from archaeological sites, ethical concerns and human remains, and the disposal and preservation of the dead. Then it delves into actual practice, describing excavation, processing, conservation, and curation. The core chapters focus on recording and analyzing data, considering in turn basic information, palaeopathology, and calling out the hard sciences. A final chapter ponders the future of the dead.
